I have had success with first editing the tags of tracks I want to burn
(usually some home recorded stuff that I have in flac; since flac can
have tag information) using easytag and then burning those tracks using
k3b. In k3b, as far as I know, I must also check the box "Write CD-Text"
in the CD-Text tab to get metadata in to the disc.
